SMA offers the complete system technology solution for Europe's largest battery energy storage project. The project is located in Pelham, England, and is one of the projects currently under construction in England. The project has a connection load of over 60 MVA and is used to provide backup power required for grid frequency regulation to improve grid fluctuations. The 26 Sunny Central Storage inverters from SMA work with lithium battery packs to provide grid operators with a range of grid management services.

Dr. Enrique Garralaga Rojas, Head of Project Development at SMA Sunbelt Energy GmbH, said: “The Pelham project is a flagship project in Europe that provides more than 60 MVA of electricity and is the largest of its kind in the world.” “In addition to energy storage inverters, SMA Sunbelt Energy GmbH also designed a power management system for the system and SCADA solution that will help large energy storage projects charge and discharge management according to grid requirements."

Pelham's energy storage project was built by SMA and its subcontractor, British Solar Renewables Limited. The entire construction period is less than six months and is Europe's largest single energy storage power generation project. The project operator is Statera Energy Limited, a developer and owner of many large power systems. The project has a system capacity of 50.06 MWh, which can compensate for the frequency fluctuation of the utility grid. In recent years, grid fluctuations have been relatively high due to insufficient connectivity to European public utilities and increased power generation in offshore wind turbine systems.

Tom Vernon, General Manager of Statera Energy Limited, said: "SMA not only completed the project construction in a short period of time, but also completed the trouble-free operation of the power station in a short time." "The highly complex system technology of SMA is reliable and practical. I was very impressed, so we chose SMA in this project."
